These illogical components influence one’s decision-making process, which goes against reasoning and judgment. If there is a problem in finding an answer, gaining consultation with a professional colleague or supervisor would be helpful in addressing cognitive and emotional factors of decision making (Knapp, & VandeCreek, 2012). To illustrate an ethical dilemma, I reflected back on what I had experienced in my practicum class as well as created an art response (Figure 1) derived from that event. I also conducted interviews with two ATRs about this situation and gained information based on their perspective if they were in the same
If the participants realized that they are being observed it could lead to anxiety. Even though, there is not informed consent given, researcher could give the participants debriefing after the experiment to avoid participants’ acts differently if they know they are being observe because this experiment need to be in a realistic setting. With debriefing, researcher could explain to participants about their experiment and whether they have any questions regarding the experiment. Researcher then could ask consent from the participants because all experiments participants must be debriefed and provide consent that their information can be used as data for
Additionally, I realized that I was not being honest with some of my friends. For example, I have this one friend who uses me and is rude towards me, but I just let it happen. I recognized that I need to have an honest talk with her about what is frustrating me and how we can improve the situation. Even though I was not able to fully discuss this with her this week, I am going to continue to think about ways I can honest with her, and find a way to discuss our problems in the
Likewise, creating a cover letter taught me many useful strategies that I will definitely put to use when it comes time for me to submit an official cover letter to a company. One of the biggest things that I have learned from taking this course is that good content is more important than sophistication. Both are very important in essay writing, but it is more important to have clear content and material so that the audience can understand your position. Last year, I always seemed to lose points on essays for not having sophisticated enough prose, so I came into this class under the impression that the most important things in a
I overcome the adversity of being expelled from school by changing my view and attitude towards different situations. The experience gave me the time and opportunity to reevaluate what I wanted out of life and how I was going to get it. During my time at the behavioral school I could have played into the other children’s negative behavior, but I took this as a major sign in my life. I realized if I continued to follow the path of the people around me I would not accomplish my goals. It was a wake up call to myself and I answered it.
Because of my inability to provide a calm and silent environment as part of my interviewing techniques, I missed out on gaining potential relevant information about my client. In the future, I will provide a very calm environment that allows the client to really express their thoughts, feelings, and experiences. I will ask questions one at a time rather than grouping them together, and I will go into the interviews mentally prepared, thus removing any self-perceived awkwardness. I also will learn new interviewing techniques on how make your client feel appropriately validated and emotionally supported. I also need to work on my body language whenever conducting interviews in the future.
After reflecting on the video, I realized I should have waited for an answer before proceeding. This clearly showed that my attending skills were affected especially in the contextual perspective (Maguire and Pitceathly, 2002). One of the contextual attending skills that I was lacking was the ability to welcome efficiently and make her comfortable hence making her feel uneasy at the start. From this, I learnt to be more patient and think through my responses internally before speaking to my client. Alternatively, I could have used silence to think carefully of what I wish to express before sharing it with my
For Robinson, he tells about how learning is in our minds and can be both good or real reasons. In comparison to Robinson, Emerson, tells us how generations such as this one fear to leave its methods behind and do not contemplate different ways to learn nor plan to leave our comfort zones. These writers have their differences on whether or not people for themselves or if people chose to believe those who influence them with their own strategies. However, both writers show us how learning is about what we make of it and people control what or how they choose to learn. At the abolishment of these stories, the readers are able to pick up on what it means to gather knowledge and whether or not they decide to choose for ourselves or follow what people before us have
The resources flowed in to the report they didn’t seem to be pasted in last minute. Always another strength I had was providing examples that relate to each of the topics mentioned in the report. While adding enough detail to each example without it going off on rant. I showed organization with in the report’s content using appropriate style for the report. The weaknesses within the report are in some areas it really showed there wasn’t enough time put into the writing because I didn’t put in the time to write it well.
Advantages of longitudinal research include the ability to examine changes over time. Following the same individuals provides significant insight to development of behavior and intellectual development. However, longitudinal research can be difficult due to time and cost. Further, researchers only examine a small group of individuals, making it difficult to generalize to the overall population. Another disadvantage to longitudinal research is the possibility of participants dropping out of the study due to the length of the study.
Evaluate the chart and determine whether change is viable (are you ready for the change or is it something that you can do right now?). When working on completing the analysis, I came to realize many things about my restraining forces and driving forces that I had not previously been aware of. I have always been aware of some of the distractions that interfere with my success, but I was not aware of all of them or how much they affected me. When being assigned to rate how much each factor influence my success, it really brought to my attention of how much they truly do. I also liked that I was able to remind myself of why I want to achieve my goal by listing my driving forces.
